Explore the Historic Halls with a Tour of the Weeden House Museum
Come explore the historic beauty of the Weeden House Museum! Built in 1819, the house of the renowned painter and poet Maria Howard Weeden is open to the public and offering insightful tours of this breathtaking landmark.
Bought by Dr. William Weeden in 1845, the house has a rich and captivating story that intertwines with major points in American history. Maria Howard Weeden lived in the home for most of her life, using her largely self-taught talents with brush and pen to make unique and long-lasting contributions to Southern art with faithfulness to fact and with respect and dignity to the individuals recorded. Come take an educational tour that showcases the traditional architecture of this whimsical house and learn all about Weeden’s interesting life, from publishing her praised stories under the pseudonym “Flake White” to her gallery shows that featured her portraits and paintings in Paris and Berlin. The house-turned-museum is an Alabama treasure that the whole family will enjoy, so make sure you plan a trip to the Weeden House Museum!
At Presbyterian Towers, the premier in Decatur, Alabama, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Saturday!
